Phew... almost missed it!!!

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Monday, April 22, 2013
Phew.... I thought I had missed spring while being so wrapped up in the tropics.  I can now see some mud and running little rivers in my yard.  I usually dislike this time of year because I am constantly vaccuming and shoveling out my porch. However, this year I am welcoming the mud, extra tonnes of laundry, the build up of water behind my greenhouses with open arms and embracing the smell of rotting grass and snow mold.  Yum!!!  On the brighter side, I do leave the stench to the smell of fre...

Off to the tropics

As I have always stated, I look forward to this time of year when I get to head to my tropical vacation.  I have started up the grow shed and I have had to afjust to working in the 28+ greenhouse. I planted the petunias, gazanias, violas, strawberries, dusty miller, some tomatoes, and others I can't spell.  I planted them on Tuesday this week after a winter getaway with my siblings, and our parents. Which by the way was fantastic. Thanks mom and dad. We went fishing, snowmobiling, hot tubbing...

Well, I don't have to tell you that it has been months since my last entry.  Mega amounts of time has passed by and many major events have happened in our lives.  The greenhouse season was exciting and busy.  I enjoyed seeing old faces and meeting the new.  May was a wet spring for us again.  We were wetter, in the fields, this year than the past year.  We managed to plant our crops by the end of June.

And what a May long weekend it was

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Wednesday, May 23, 2012
What a great weekend we had.  The threat of rain went away and the sunshine was a warm welcome.  The greenhouse was very busy but it was a very welcome busy.  When the greenhouse closed Saturday night it looked like we had been robbed.  There were empty shelves, and plants everywhere.  Sunday when I came home from the flea market, my sister had moved things so it was like starting the season again.  Looking for plants because they had been moved. What a great feeling.  I hope that your expect...
